| (L) The lovely maiden Megan and her '75
(R) Note the Buick-style engine "portholes"! How did this come about? This goes to show you that the sheet metal from a Skylark will fit, and vice versa.
|1975|| (L) Nice nose shot of a '75;
the aftermarket stripes are a nice accent.
(R) Olds carried the 1974 "S" option into 1975
|1976||1977|| Looks like the "S" morphed into the "SX" in '76
and ran at least until 1977.

|| July '03 Eric Bracken dove into his archives for these vintage shots of
his '78 Omega. He tells us:
"Originally bought as a scrap car with 43,000 miles on it for five hundred bucks, I drove the car for about five years before starting the transformation."
(The car looks blue in these shots, but it's actually a light green.)
OMEGA Transformed (July 2003) by Eric Bracken
||That mild-mannered car has turned into the monster you see at left. He continues: "The car now has been tubbed, four link rear, stretched wheel opening to fit the 31 by 15 in. tires, eight point roll cage, Sikkens paint- close to the original with some pearl added, Porsche Boxster buckets, big block Chevy power (sorry), Turbo 400 trans. Check out the cowl hood. We grafted a 69 Z-28 hood center on to the stock Omega hood. The car is now at the interior shop getting the inside all straightened out."|

Now here's a guy doing some quality work. The cage is beautifully integrated into the already-nice Olds interior. This is one comfortable-looking drag car! He's got some custom door panels, new seats, and I'm guessing the silver trap door is for access to a fuel cell? Note the new console, too.
